The Presidential Candidate of Hope Democratic Party, HDP, in the 2019 general elections, Chief Ambrose Owuru, has sued President Muhammadu Buhari at the Federal High Court, in Abuja, asking the court to declare the Presidential seat vacant, Page 36 learnt.
He wants the court to declare Buhari as an unlawful President, who is illegally occupying the Presidential seat.
Owuru, a British-trained Constitutional Lawyer, is praying the court to declare him the authentic winner of the 2019 Presidential election, even above Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, who came a close second.
More so, he is seeking an order of the court directing for his immediate inauguration to take over from President Buhari.
Owuru filed the suit on June 16, 2021, against President Buhari, the Attorney-General of the Federation, and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
In addition, the 2019 HDP Presidential Candidate is boastfully claiming that he won the February 16, 2019, Presidential debate, and that his suit against President Buhari at the Supreme Court was inconclusive, due to some errors on the adjourned date.
By the suit, the Plaintiff wants a declaration that he is entitled to serve out a tenure of 4 years, after his formal inauguration.
Owuru also wants President Buhari removed from Office with immediate effect, and be compelled through the order of the court to refund all salaries, allowances, and emoluments he collected while being unlawfully in Office as President.
The Plaintiff is further seeking an order of perpetual injunction restraining President Buhari, the Attorney-General of the Federation, and INEC, from conducting any Presidential election in 2023, to enable him complete his 4-year term when inaugurated.
No date has been fixed for hearing of the suit.
